Patti LaBelle is reportedly adding a line of frozen Chinese food to her
retail culinary products after successfully becoming a pie mogul.
According to Page Six, the legendary singer and entrepreneur has partnered with restaurateur Stratis Morfogen on the new food items, which will be sold in supermarkets across the country.
The pair celebrated at Morfogen’s restaurant Brooklyn Chop House on Wednesday with their business partners, including LaBelle’s son Zuri Edwards, Alex Thompson and Charles Suitt.
“Love when my friend @mspattilabelle @suittnyc now my new partners in BCH GROCERS LLC comes’ to @brooklynchophouse for a surprise celebratory dinner on our new Co!” Morfogen captioned a photo of himself and the two-time Grammy winner. “Did someone in the frozen gourmet food section say “French Onion Soup, Pastrami, Bacon Cheeseburger & Lamb Gyro Dumplings?”
In February, LaBelle, added a Southern buttermilk pie to her Walmart line of premade desserts, which include vanilla pound cake, “Somebody Loves You, Baby” chocolate cake, banana pudding cups and her famous sweet potato pie. She launched the products beginning in 2015.
There are no details on when the frozen food will be available for purchase.
